Pseudopapilledema secondary to optic nerve drusen: ophthalmoscopic differentiation.

  • Jared Levinson
  • Published 1986 in Journal of the American Optometric Association


Two cases of pseudopapilledema secondary to optic nerve drusen were presented. The first case demonstrated the difficulty of ophthalmoscopic differentiation in children and the possible misapplication of invasive neurologic procedures. The second case report demonstrated the relatively greater ease of ophthalmoscopic differentiation in adults and the familial and progressive nature of optic nerve drusen. Also presented were some of the possible sequelae of this condition.
